From here, literally. I’m about to go on break from December 12th to January 11th. During this time, I will sadly not have access to the internet—I like not being involved with technology too much round this season, anyway, so that’s not a real problem for me. But you guys, however, will have to find somewhere else to inject a dose of politics/human rights/art/Lady Gaga, if you...

areza: If people put the same kind of energy that they do in talking about the whole Tiger Woods things, “celebrity gossip”, and things like that — into issues like human rights and issues that truly matter, I’m sure that people could really start making a difference in this world. I am so sick of hearing about him. His life is none of my business, and I don’t want it to be.
Book Review: Wetlands by Charlotte Roche
appledork: The girl in the book is a crazy interesting. You should read the English version of this book. I couldn’t stop laughing and feeling funny after reading it. Like getting drunk without the liquor. Roche really elevates your senses and makes you aware of the many parts to a woman’s body. The sensory imagery she uses is dangerous and uncouth but that feeds your thirst for the next thing...

iamthegirlanachronism: A YOUNG boy traumatised by domestic violence had shut down. He would not talk, trapped in his pain. But after a day feeding and patting a guinea pig, he came home to his mother singing. A young girl, scarred by her broken family, sat in an animal shelter with a kitten under each arm, and said quietly to them, ”It’s all right, I don’t have a home either.” Anecdotes like...

My mom doesnt want to put up a christmas tree
thefrancakes: being home the last few days has shown me that my mom really has not worked past losing my grandma at all. she’s dealing with her depression by overworking and therefore becoming an outright bitch in situations that don’t need any attitude. she’s just being so mean and it hurts because you can’t respond. she keeps saying she doesn’t want a christmas tree this year, but how...
Sweden Burns Bunnies for Fuel →
iamthegirlanachronism: The Swedes may be warm, but they are not warm and fuzzy. This fall, authorities rounded up 3,000 wild rabbits and then burned them for fuel at a heating plant in central Sweden. Bunny-killing is an annual practice in Stockholm — it’s used to combat overpopulation in the city’s extensive network of parks — but the animals had never been used to heat buildings before this...
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the...– Antoine de Saint-Exupery (via iamthegirlanachronism) Perhaps the most true quote I will ever post. I came to this conclusion last month. No one can ever experience something exactly the way you do; but they can do it with you. Each of us are alone in our heads except for the time we give eachother.
In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.– Deepak Chopra (via i-peach-feng-shui)

…I stayed up until 2:30am handwriting the first two pages of my four page final; then, I pulled myself out of bed almost 6 hours later to go to breakfast and then type, and finish writing my final, which I turned in promptly at 11:20am this morning. Along with a two page essay due two to three weeks ago. All that’s left is a math final. I think I’ll take it tomorrow. I’m...

caraobrien: From the ONE Campaign, a post from AIDS activist Princess Kasuna Zulu. In its entirety: Twelve years ago when Dr Tembo gave me the news that I was HIV positive, he gave me only six months to live. While Time magazine’s Man of the Year—Dr. David Ho—had created a cocktail of drugs that could suppress HIV, it would be years before treatment made its way to the poor hospital in...

Will I stop procrastinating and work on them before seeing the Santaland Diaries, by David Sedaris, at the Blackfriars Playhouse tonight? One disgruntled elf, working at Macy’s in NYC. Couldn’t be better. Maybe. Mostly, I’ve just been looking up my art professor’s work online to see what sort of things they like to make. They get to see my stuff all the time. Their turn.
